Few questions:

Post by TechNoir »

1. I was going here and there and found this:
http://yonkykong.files.wordpress.com/20 ... solidx.jpg

Is it fake, or there really was Plissken's campaign, but got scrapped?

2. I wonder if there's MGS1 Japanese version with English subs... Wanna see Mantis's reaction towards Snatcher and Policenauts' save files.

3. I wonder if there's MG2 romhack with the new portraits... Coz' I really don't like the old ones.

it would specifically need to be from Japan too, they're the only ones that have MSX games on virtual console.

It's probably in an MGS4 artbook. I remember having 1 in my bookmarks, but I remember the site changing completely so it doesn't help anymore.

Oh, the irony - I bought a Wii. Not for MG2, of course, but for MGS Twin Snakes, Resident Evil games, and other stuff.

One more - where can I get the MGS3 Secret Theatre source videos? They're all in too bad quality in YouTube, so I thought that the source videos look better. Or can I extract them from the disc image somehow?

Nah man, this topic and small coversations like this are just what happens when you crack open Jonathan's psyche and observe the inner workings of his mind.

as for the thing with the secret theatre videos there ARE slightly better quality vid than others on youtube but overall they're probably going to look not-too-stellar due to being prerendered ps2 video footage (which mind you CAN look good but there's a reason some cutscenes in DMC HD are pixelated). Your best bet is probably recording them off a PS2 emulator and filtering the video? I never did anything like this so I'm clueless.

Yeah, and you can thank me (or that GirianSeed573 guy) for that.

Like AwesomeBrand said, your best bet is recording through PCSX2 (if it has one) or a screen recorder like Camstudio and HyperCam2. I tried doing it two years ago, but with no luck.

Just checked through PCSX2. Yeah, they're just slightly better.

Can't believe nobody in the world made a hack of MG2:SS with new portraits.

As far as I know, there are only two Metal Gear games that have been released in Japan with the ability to switch subtitle languages, and those are Metal Gear Solid: Integral and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (and presumably, The Phantom Pain will follow this trend).

I bought it the day it came out to get the MGS 2 demo. At Babbage's it was 49.99, I ended up actually really liking the game after playing it and beating it several times :D

And here we go - while ranting about Ground Zeroes, people either forget the MGS2 thing, or weren't born at that time.

Surprisingly I didn't care much for MGS2, loved 3 though. I throughly enjoyed GZ as well.

Since this thread is semi-active and already pretty off-topic, I figured I might as well poke my head in here and say I'm making a Skype group for fans of Kojima's lesser-known works (and also Metal Gear). My main post is in the off-topic section of the forum, but I'll reiterate here that if you want to join, my Skype is JexisAgain!

I even have something nifty and Snatcher-related to hand out that you guys might not already have. You all seem pretty funny, so I'd love to get to talk you bunch more in a less turtle-paced social media format.

Question! *guitar riff from Deja Vu*

Does anyone know where I can get a MGS1 "movie" (i.e. all cutscenes combined), which is in HQ quality and not from PC version (with no FMVs)?
